Etsy Take Five Tuesday

December 8, 2009

It’s Etsy Take Five Tuesday time! Are you ready to see what’s on the radar this week? Lots of crafty gorgeousness, that’s what. I’ve even thrown in some fancy leggings and some chubby birds. :) Enjoy!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Pulsatilla has a fine selection of gorgeous prints inspired by some of her favorite animals set against modern patterns.

I’ve shared Miss Dottie Angel with you before but it’s been awhile, and you may not have been a decor8 reader when I last talked about her handmade wares so here you go… meet Dottie Angel and her retrofabulousness.

I have this real obsession with tights and leggings lately… especially patterned ones with pretty shoes and so when I was looking for some over on Etsy I was surprised to find Norwegian Wood — such lovely leggings + things! And by the way, aren’t her black heels fierce?

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my Darling Clementine! You’re not lost or gone forever, such pretty papers, Clementine!

Step right up folks! Pick a bird, any bird, and Ashley Anna Brown will custom make it for you! I love this idea… she invites you to look at her Flickr stream to get an idea of the bird colors and details that she has created in the past… Tweet!

    The Paris cards from Darling Clementine are so great! They have such a nice balance of fun whimsy with a sense of sophistication.
